From the award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fangirl, Carry On, and Landline comes a hilarious and heartfelt novel about an office romance that blossoms one email at a time... Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives. Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now—reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be “internet security officer,” he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers—not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke. When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. He can't help being entertained, and captivated, by their stories. But by the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself. What would he even say...?

The answer to why people feel and act the way they do lies in the profound effect of a child's bonding process with his or her parents. How successfully we form and maintain relationships throughout life is related to those early issues of "attachment." The author has cited four primary bonding styles that explain why people love, feel, and act the way they do. This book is for anyone who desires closeness, especially in the most intimate relationships: marriage, parenting, close friends, and ultimately with God.

The book offers sound advice and provides exercises for parents and their children, as well as useful tools that supervising social workers can use both in individual support of carers as well as in training exercises.

Henry, a middle-aged psychology professor, is in the midst of an unpleasant stage in his life. His past relationships with his parents have left him feeling enmeshed and bitterunappreciated and guilty. His adulterous attempt to seek affection outside his unsatisfactory marriage has ended tragically. As he privately struggles with his own insecurities, Henry embarks on an unpredictable journey to find healthy attachments. Despite repeating several unfulfilling sexual experiences with his female students, Henry makes a valid attempt to maintain some degree of professionalism. But is it a mere coincidence that Henry is teaching Attachment Theory, a course focused on healthy and unhealthy interpersonal relationships that first involve parent and child and then later adult romantic connections? As Henry struggles to find a way to satisfy his own unmet attachment needs, he tries to ignore his own compulsion to seek out relationships that do not provide the deep, emotional connection he so desperately craves. But Henry is about to discover that his past actions may come back to haunt him in ways he never imagined. Only time will tell if he will be able to take his life full circle and heal the wounds from long-ago.
